Westwind 'Vortex' to be Unveiled at CPCA Show

Westwind Air Bearings Ltd. is proud to announce the official launch of the Vortex, one of the most efficient and reliable spindles in the industry, at the CPCA Show 2005, being held from 16-18 March 2005, at the Shanghai International Exhibition Center, People’s Republic of China.

Located in Hall 1F, Booth AS21, Westwind will be displaying a vast range of air bearing spindles, including the new Vortex spindle.  The Vortex 125,000 rpm PCB drilling spindle offers optimum efficiency, greater reliability, simple maintenance and reduced operating costs.  The Vortex’s high efficiency motor allows the use of a smaller water chiller unit, therefore ultimately reducing machine and spindle running costs, whilst the Vortex’s bonded collet system is factory set for outstanding performance.

Westwind will also be displaying the D1733 250,000 rpm micro drilling spindle capable of large hole drilling over 3mmØ and the resilient ‘Tornado’ 160,000 rpm PCB drilling spindle, fitted with Westwind’s proven high reliability Automatic Tool Change (ATC) system – the spindle is as good as new after testing to half a million tool changes.

Steel Yang, General Manager, Westwind Air Bearings Suzhou Company Ltd., said: “We are delighted to be exhibiting at the CPCA Show again.  2005 is proving to be yet another exciting year at Westwind - the introduction of the Vortex is one of many new spindle technologies being presented by Westwind over the coming year.”
